Having got the virtual Madrid Open completed I thought it might be time to open this thread rather than have everything mixed in with the Other Players and Andy Articles threads. We can include any future virtual tournaments on here too.
To quote the headline to Russell Fuller's article on the BBC Sport website -"Tennis returns: No fans, line judges, ball kids or handshakes"
There is a minor 8 man exhibition tournament (none of the players is in the top 100) which will be played for real but behind closed doors at a German Tennis Academy and with very strict precautions in place. It'll be shown on the US's Tennis Channel which will cover all the matches starting Friday 1 May and then on 7 and 14 May. Other than that I can't find out although it claims that it'll be streamed 'world wide' - https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/tennis/52496009
Meanwhile Rafa is hoping to stage similar exhibition matches at his academy in Mallorca (dates unknown) - https://uk.sports.yahoo.com/news/coronavirus-rafa-nadal-academy-considers-030837751.html
, while the Ultimate Tennis Showdown is scheduled to begin at the Mouratoglou Academy near Nice on 16 May, provided that the French Government agrees that it's safe to do so - https://www.tennisworldusa.org/tennis/news/ATP_Tennis/86701/patrick-mouratoglou-and-alex-popyrin-join-forces-to-start-ultimate-tennis-showdown/
I'm not sure that "players involved in the matches will be allowed to express their emotions freely on the court" is a very wise idea though!
I'd love to think that Andy will take part in these two events but, depending on how things go, it's possible that he might not want to travel. I think though that he and Jamie had an idea about doing something during the grass court season, although whether real or virtual I don't know.
